There’s a nutty, oxidised note to kick off with, alongside some burning wood and sulphur. A heavy earthiness lurks behind, bringing in elements of mushroom and roasting tin before red and black fruits start to emerge. The bonfire continues to blaze, and this, plus the fruit and the cask-driven sulphur, brings out a note like an old-fashioned, oxidised Burgundy with the classic attendant aroma. The sulphur is upped with water. A slightly dumb start, as if the spirit has been blunted by the wine.
